It appears that showing up at the end of the day on a Sunday is the
way to go. Imagine people winding up and down. They weren't there
when we were there! No pictures allowed in the exhibit, so what
follows are the non-exhibit pictures.
I do like it when there is art everywhere. This is the entry booth.
And this is the Mississippi River Visitor Center, just inside the doors of
the museum. And that's Melanie, standing on a map of the Mississippi
River Basin, printed right on the floor. Love that.
We didn't see a lot of the rest of the museum, as we were there pretty close
to closing time. A lot of the museum is geared towards small-ish children.
But this exhibit was tailor-made for me. Little automatons . . . many, many
of them. This tiger has a fish swimming around and around in his head
as he's typing.
Cat and cat puppet!
Right outside the museum, the other direction from the charming little square,
is the Mississippi River, complete with steam-powered showboats.
This is the view to the right of the museum on the way out.Not picturesque in the same way as the charming square or the Mississippi
River, but after seeing this picture I love the lines and colors in it.
